Patara Thai

 I was dying for some authentic Thai food in London and this place is sort of the best Thai food so far... I've never had Thai fine dining before, this was probably my first time? I've always had Thai food in a normal cafe or the not-so-expensive restaurant (with quality of course). I really like the ambience, not a bad place to go for a date :P

Tom yum goong (prawns). I must say that their tom yum is so damn spicy! I love spicy food despite the fact that I can't really take it. This tom yum soup is really the best I've had so far (London I mean)... Most places are actually serving watery diluted tom yum which is horrible

Fishcakes and crab sticks. I love the fishcakes... I remember back when I was young I hated Thai fish cakes because of the herbs in it... Coriander and/or lemongrass I think? I've always hated those but I've learnt to love it over the years, and that's what that makes the fishcakes so yummy~

Green curry served on a hot pot. Interesting how they served it on a hot pot, to keep it warm because it wouldn't be as great if it's cold. The restaurant is really cold.... So the food gets cold really quickly.

If you're looking for authentic Thai in London, this place is great. But be prepared to fork out some money on it, it's about £40-£50 for two (without wine...). Still, worth trying (especially if you're so desperate for some good Thai food!!!) :)

P/S : There are a few outlets around London. Check their website for more info. Remember to make a reservation before going, it's always packed. :)
